Yoga For spring
Yoga for spring will invigorate and cleanse the body.
Yoga for spring should energize the body, moving mucus out during the cool, damp weather. The room should be reasonably warm, and expect to sweat. Focus on sun salutations, standing postures that invert the head (like downward dog), lunges, heart openers, and back bends.
Limit supine postures and savasana, following with a seated visualization, chanting or meditation. Encourage deep breathing and activity, as the practitioner will always feel better after getting things moving.
